Just yesterday, rumors were circulating that production on the NES Classic had ceased. The rumor originated in a post on NeoGAF, stating that Bergsala, Nintendo’s Nordic distributor, had claimed that production of the hot console had stopped, and that retailers were to receive no more units. Today, Tech Radar is refuting these claims, reporting that production will go on, and that units will continue to be shipped out to retailers, as confirmed by a Nintendo UK representative.

“Production for the Nintendo Classic Mini: NES continues, and NOE [Nintendo of Europe] will continue to ship units to retail on a regular basis.”

This is good news to all of those still hoping to get their hands on the little box of nostalgia at a fair price, rather than pay the soaring prices on eBay to get their hands on a NES Classic Edition.
